Anthony Jeselnik became famous after he began hosting the “Comedy Central Presents” show in 2009. He was born on December 22, 1978, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He’s the son of Anthony and Stephanie Jeselnik. His ancestry and surname originate from Slovenia.

During his childhood, the aspiring comedian was a huge fan of “Saturday Night Live” and he often stayed up until midnight to watch it. Among his other favorites are “The Ben Stiller Show” and “Mr. Show”.
Following his high school graduation, Jeselnik moved to Louisiana to study at the Tulane University. There, he was part of the alpha tau omega fraternity. After he received his alma meter from the institution formerly known as the “University of Louisiana” (and several internship trips) he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as both a comedian and writer.
Eventually, he made his television debut on an episode of “Premium Blend” in 2006 as himself. Towards the late years of the decade, he landed a lot more roles and began to receive some recognition from his comedy acts on Conan O’Brien and Jim Norton’s late-night talk shows. But perhaps the show that helped him breakthrough was “Comedy Central Presents”, that he began hosting in 2009.

From his spectacular work on the show and for writing over 150 episodes, Jeselnik earned an estimated net worth of about $700,000.

He then transitioned into the producing role and worked on several documentaries and television specials such as “Caligula”, “Thoughts and Prayers”, “Fire in the Maternity Ward”, and “Anthony Jeselink @ JFL”.
